The drill sergeant was making his morning announcements to a group of new recruits in an army training camp.
“Today, gentlemen”, the drill sergeant said, “I have some good news and some bad news”.
There was a pause and a hushed silence as the platoon of new recruits wondered what was coming next.
“First, the good news”, the drill sergeant said. “Private Johnson will be setting the pace on our morning run”.
With this announcement, the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Johnson was overweight and terribly slow compared to the rest of them.
But then, the drill sergeant finished his statement, “Now for the bad news. Private Johnson will be driving a truck”.
